Here is a 57 motor that my dad is putting together.

This is a pile of frames that the tubes are getting ground out of. Some guys try to heat up the castings and pull the tubes, we like to grind them out, It is a lot less invasive and doesn't damage the precious original parts.

I spent some time pressure testing heads and luckily only one of them leaked. these large port heads are for a 46, there was only one missing fin, I welded it up, but it still needs to be ground.

Here are the holes that had to be welded up in the exhaust ports. This is a pretty common issue with old heads. The exhaust pipes and ports get a little worn out and somebody drills a hole in them for a screw. This is not a good fix.
